What is Revision Skincare?

To put it simply, Revision Skincare is a brand focused on repairing and rejuvenating your skin. Its products are manufactured in the USA from globally sourced ingredients. Revision Skincare is known for being a leading marketer of physician dispensed products sold exclusively through dermatologists, plastic surgeons, medical spas across the US. Revision provides clinically-proven, high-performing skincare products that are formulated to provide targeted solutions for enhancing the skin’s appearance and reducing signs of aging.

Revision Skincare also claims to be one of the industry leaders in uncovering age-defying formulations with numerous innovative firsts for the industry. Among other firsts, Revision Skincare notes that it was the first brand to widely incorporate peptides in its products, the first brand to utilize THD Ascorbate as an alternative to L-Ascorbic Acid, the first to harness the power of microbiome age-defying benefits, and the first to develop a comprehensive anti-aging tinted moisturizer mineral sunscreen.

Revision Skincare has a 110,000 square foot Manufacturing and Research Development facility (located in Dallas, TX) dedicated to the discovery of new advancements in skin aging.

Many of these studies are publically available for review online and include before and after photos of the clinical trials.

Revision Skincare Reviews

Revision Skincare gets highly positive reviews based on improvements to skin after using its products. No matter where you end up deciding to purchase Revision Skincare products, you will see across the board that they have satisfied customers and five-star reviews left and right. In fact, it is very rare that I ever see any one-star reviews on the effectiveness of Revision Skincare products themselves.

Negative reviews are more commonly associated with purchases made through unauthorized retailers as these products may be unauthentic or expired. Revision Skincare is our most popular product sold at ELLEMES Medical Spa, and we consistently receive nothing by positive feedback from our customers. See below some of what our verified purchasers are saying about Revision Skincare products:

Revision Skincare Frequently Asked Questions

Let’s review some more FAQs for Revision Skincare and their products below:

Is Revision Skincare Worth the Money?

Based on the strenuous clinical testing involved in its R&D process, Revision Skincare’s products have one thing in common, they really do work as proved by science. While everyone’s situation is unique, most would agree that Revision Skincare is worth the money.

Is Revision Skincare Medical Grade?

Medical grade skincare classification is a somewhat controversial topic as there isn’t a definitive agreed upon criteria for what is considered medical grade skincare. That said, Revision Skincare is mainly marketed and sold to Physicians, Dermatologists, and other medical professionals, and all of Revision’s products are clinically tested prior to consumer use.

Further, Revision Skincare has eight board certified medical professionals as medical advisors over the direction of its products. All things considered, we would believe that this qualifies Revision Skincare enough to be considered medical grade skincare by most industry standards.

Does Revision Skincare Test on Animals?

According to a spokesperson of the company, Revision Skincare’s policy is to never test its retail products on animals. Its partnerships across the globe, including in China with Tmall Global, are structured in such a way to support and maintain this policy at all times. In China specifically, Revision only sells via channels that do not require animal testing.

Are the Ingredients in Revision Skincare Products Safe?

While generally you could expect all ingredients used in Revision Skincare’s products to be safe, everyone’s personal situation may be different. Revision Skincare provides a detailed list of product ingredients on all of its products, so it’s important to review these ingredients prior to use if you know of any potential allergies or sensitivities to certain ingredients. Spot testing a product on a small part of your body prior to regular use is highly recommended.

Is Revision Skincare Safe for Pregnancy?

Not all products by Revision Skincare are safe to use during pregnancy. For example, products using Retinoids, or Vitamin A, are advised against during pregnancy due to the increased risk of congenital defects. As everyone’s situation is different, it’s encouraged to ask your doctor which products are safe and which ones to avoid during pregnancy.

Is Amazon an Authorized Retailer for Revision Skincare?

According to Revision’s website, Revision Skincare products are sold exclusively through Dermatologists, Plastic Surgeons and other Authorized Revision Skincare Professionals & Retailers. While Amazon is not specifically listed as an Authorized Retailer, it is also not included on Revision’s Unauthorized Online Retailer list either, so it’s uncertain at this time whether or not Amazon is an Authorized Retailer of Revision Skincare products at this time.

Given the uncertainty of its authenticity, it’s safer to purchase Revision Skincare products directly from retailers listed as Authorized Retailers on Revision Skincare’s website. In our experience, you are also likelier to receive discounts and first-time promotional codes on Revision Skincare products when purchasing directly with authorized retailers than from Amazon.

For example, ELLEMES Medical Spa currently offers free shipping on all purchases made directly from and is also offering 15% Revision Skincare purchase with promo code WELCOME15 for first-time buyers.

Does Revision Skincare Offer Promo or Coupon Codes?

Revision Skincare rarely offers discounts on products sold directly from its website; however, it does provide promo codes periodically to its online followers, such as a free product or gift with purchase. Sales on Revision Skincare products are more commonly seen when purchased directly through one of its authorized retailers.

For example, ELLEMES Medical Spa currently offers free shipping on all purchases made directly through and is also offering 15% Revision Skincare purchases with promo code WELCOME15 for first-time buyers.

Conclusion On Revision Skincare

Revision Skincare is a dependable company with so much to offer. No matter your skincare needs, Revision Skincare products have been clinically proven to help repair and soothe a variety of skincare issues.
